Adam Jones Accuses San Francisco Fan of Throwing Banana at Him

by at . Comments

Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones has come out with a damning accusation against a fan in San Francisco.

Following his team's 10-2 victory over the Giants yesterday, Jones Tweeted the following to his 129,000 followers:

"I want to thank whatever slapd--- threw that banana towards my direction in CF in the last inning. Way to show ur class u jacka--."

Jones is African-American and the tossing of a banana has generally been considered an especially racist move.

Jim Moorehead, the Giants' senior director of media relations, told The Baltimore Sun that he will be reviewing security footage today in order to investigate the allegation.

"I love how some ppl are defending the actions by someone today," Jones wrote as a follow-up Tweet. "Shows how u really are also. All good wit me. I just #StayHungry."

Jones added that he may "get off social media soon" based on the reaction he's received to this claim.

Jones went 2 for 5 in the game and hit a home run, as the Orioles continue to battle for a playoff spot and head to Arizona for a three-game series that starts tonight.
